> Well, both yes and no. Yes, if 343 decides to make them much quicker than now. I mean, you’re supposed to get rewarded for managing to sneak up on someone, so a quick assassination animation would definitely be better. No if you still assassinate at a horribly slow rate. Personally, I hate seeing my spartan put a knife in the other player I’m trying to assassinate only to see it get yoinked. Although it’s quite amusing when you’re the one doing the yoinking.
How about a compromise, the assassinations can be a bit lengthy, but the second that your knife (or hands in the case of the neck snap assassination) touches the assassinated player, then you definitely get the credit for that kill if either you get killed during the assassination, or if someone else is shooting at the person you’re assassinating. And how about for a yoink medal instead of getting more credits, you get negative credits, you get the point for the kill, but you lose credits every time you yoink somebody.
